Wiring complexity and costs can be an obstacle when installing level sensors. The SPL-100 battery-powered single point laser from BinMaster (Lincoln, NE) allows use of level sensors on silos or in remote locations where inventory monitoring has not been feasible. The SPL-100 is powered by a Lithium battery, taking interval readings from once an hour to once a day, with a projected battery life of three to five years. It measures low and no-dust solids contained in bins, tanks, or silos up to 98 feet tall. Features include:
- Fast and easy setup. Install the sensor, power and aim the laser, and connect to the cloud.
- LoRa long-range communications which send measurements from the SPL-100 to the LG-100 wireless gateway. The LG-100 provides a cellular or ethernet connection to the BinView web application or Binventory LAN-based software for inventory data access from your phone, tablet or desktop computer.
- Fixed mounting plates available in angles of 0°, 5°, 10°, or 30° as well as an adjustable swivel mount that allows angle alteration from 0° to 45° to aim the laser.
- The ability to report on remaining battery life to ensure users have current readings. Programmable high and low-level alerts are sent via email or text so you stay in-the-know about inventory levels.
